      Jonathan, you really should do some reading on sugar (carbs) and stress. Short term weight loss from carbs is probably nothing more than glycogen loss. I want you in top shape buddy, not stressed 😃

      Does 1 ensure per loop sound right? I will also be drinking cliff bars and eating food. Food and hydration seems to be what's separates the men from the boys.

      I *strongly* recommend you eat and drink what appeals. I've consistently found that forcing something down just makes a bad situation worse. If you believe you're really short on fluid or calories, then slow down or stop until the appetite returns.

      It took 4 days after I did the 12% downhill TM at 7 min pace for 60 minutes for the DOM to be gone. I had more problems with my calves than my quads. Go figure. I will do 1 more downhill at just 5% next week before Umstead. Got to give my body to chance to get back to 100%

      Franco- I've ran a relatively flat 100k and can't imagine my quads after another 38 miles of it, they were totally blown out in a way I've never experienced before. I've incorporated some dh running for Boston, but an ultra is different beast altogether.

      I never have problems with relatively flat 100 milers (+/-4.5K' gain/loss - this is the flatest I've done for a hundred) so was curious...anyway, thanks for all the feedback. :-) Most of the downhill training for me happens at races themselves.

      Did 1 hour today at -9% - 10.5 miles. I am doing the workout once a week to strengthen the quads for Umstead. I like giving my body a chance to recover before doing it again.

      I under estimated the amount of Doms 2 days after the workout- 1 hour: -9% / 10.5 miles. Had to cut my Umstead run short today by 1 loop because of the thigh fatigue. Will not go this deep again until after Umstead.

      you are probably not interested in shorter races, but with this kind of turnover why not try to race a faster half or full marathon. you might get a good result, I mean, good even for you. or just race a fast marathon as a workout

      Yes, I'm trying to cram in as much downhill as I can before Umstead 100. I'll transition to normal running as the race approaches. I think I've accepted your request; DM has been playing up and not letting me accept, so I'm not sure if it's worked or not.
